Bulloch Academy football coach Clint Morgan uses one word over and over again when he talks about tonight's opponent, the Bethesda Day School Blazers.
TWIN CITY - Sometimes, it's about a little bit more than the football.
SYLVANIA - This time last year, Screven County pitcher Marla Thompson was starting for the Lady Gamecocks' middle school team. Now in the middle of the 2007 season, Thompson - just a freshman - has thrown every pitch for the varsity squad, and has led it to a 6-4 record (4-2, Region 3-AA).
ATLANTA - The Braves may be done with scoreboard watching, but the batting race could keep them entertained.
METTER - The Metter Lady Tigers (9-5, 7-1 Region 3-AA) required only one inning to get the 15 runs they needed to put the Josey Eagles away after three as Adrienne Lanier and Lexi Allen combined for eight strikeouts and a three-inning no hitter to get a 15-0 region win Thursday.
ATLANTA - Atlanta scored all its runs on two-out singles and the Braves used seven pitchers to beat the Florida Marlins 4-3 on Tuesday night.

SYLVANIA - The Southeast Bulloch Lady Yellow Jackets (7-4, 4-1 Region 3-AA) suffered their first region loss as Lady Gamecock pitcher Marla Thompson hurled a complete game, three-hit shutout and Screven County (6-4, 5-2 Region 3-AA) topped SEB 2-0 Monday night.
ATLANTA - Andruw Jones hit a three-run homer, Jeff Francoeur reached 100 RBIs for the second year in a row and John Smoltz pitched six strong innings to lead the Atlanta Braves past the mistake-prone Florida Marlins 11-6 on Monday night.
WASHINGTON - Tim Hudson held Washington to seven hits in a complete game, the first by an Atlanta pitcher this season, and the Braves topped the Nationals 3-0 on Sunday to keep their flickering playoff hopes alive.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Linebacker Mike Peterson tried to stay out of public eye last week, too embarrassed to be seen around Jacksonville and too upset to defend his defense.
It may be a long time before football fans in Bulloch County see the type of classic that was played Friday night at Womack Field.
The old football coaches' cliché is that special teams are one-third of a good team's game. That axiom proved itself for Bulloch Academy in Friday night's 42-6 thumping of Robert Toombs Christian Academy.
BROOKLET – The lightening around Fred Shaver Stadium was the only thing that kept the Southeast Bulloch defense off the field as the visiting Vidalia Indians (2-0) shut down the Yellow Jacket offense and got a 26-0 win at SEB (1-2) Friday.
The Portal Panthers continued their sluggish start to the 2007 season on Friday night, falling to Screven County by a 32-0 margin. The loss was their second shutout defeat in as many weeks and dropped the Panthers to a record of 0-3 with the Region 3-A schedule looming ahead.
